Pinkly Perfect’s Guide to a Cozy Night In This Valentine’s Day

valentines.day.night.in

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching. While we love the idea of cozying up with our crush, we also know the importance of valuing all the love in our lives. Which is why you may be inclined to practice self-love or a cozy night in with your girlfriends instead of the more typical date night.

 

Below are products that will certainly add to a night of relaxing and indulging this February 14th.

Philosophy Fresh Cream Body Lotion:

philosophy.fresh.cream

The winter months can be unkind to our skin. Philosophy Fresh Cream body lotion brings the spa to you with this creamy lotion that smells like a batch of freshly made cream. Lather up as you get ready to settle in for a night of relaxing.

 

Jars by Dani:

jars.by.dani.valentines.day

Jars by Dani is one of our favorites because it is 1. Delicious, 2. Convenient, and 3. Oh so pretty! We especially love the Valentine’s Day theme jars and think picking up a pack of 6 would be perfect for a girls’ night in.

 

Wine:

be.flirty.wine

Call us millennials but we’re all about inexpensive wine with clever packaging. We particularly love this bottle of Be.Flirty Moscato since it’s so on Valentine brand.

 

Minnie Rose Slippers:

minnie.rose.slippers

How can you get cozy without an appropriate wardrobe? Minnie Rose slippers are the perfect treat yourself gift to stay comfy and cute as you cuddle up on the couch with your besties.

 

TV Marathon:

Rather than watch Bravo reruns, opt for a new series to binge watch that’s both addicting and completely captivating. We recommend The Crown, Riverdale, Gilmore Girls, or Black Mirror.

 

 

However you decide to celebrate, we hope you have a lovely Valentine’s Day!

If Pinkly Perfect Could Name the Conversation Candy Hearts

Stick it to your New Year’s Resolutions!

new.years.resolution.stickers

Written by: Sarah Feblin

We’re all about making small changes that can add up to a happier, healthier new year. But we’re also all about cute, inexpensive accessories that can take something plain and make it pretty. Combine the two? Resolutions never looked so good! Instead of cutting your Starbucks runs down or only checking Insta twice a day, why not make some you’ll actually want to keep – with these adorable stickers to remind you of your goals, 2018 is sure to be your best year yet!

 

Each sticker featured below can be found on redbubble.com, a site where independent artists can turn their work into all kinds of products. We’re currently loving the sticker trend, but be sure to check out similar items in each artist’s shop!

 

1) Embrace your inner #girlboss

 

FutureIsFemaleSticker

Who runs the world? Girls. Be your best, empowered self with stickers that will remind everyone that the future is female. Persist and make 2018 the year of girl power!

 

2) Get motivated with a new mantra

 

GoWithTheFlowSticker

Go with the flow with these summery states of mind, perfect for those cold, snowy days when all we want to be is somewhere on a beach! We can’t wait for good vibes and ice cream – so just keep swimming, because we can’t wait for summer 2018!

 

3) Make every day a beach day

 

DolphinSticker

Sometimes, when everything is buried under feet and feet of snow, we forget about ocean waves and palm trees. Embrace your inner mermaid in 2018 with these stickers that say “take me to the beach, please!”

 

4) Crush your next semester

 

DNASticker

Who said science is just for boys? In 2018, we’re proving those nay-sayers wrong. STEM majors, show those periodic tables and physics labs you mean business with a DNA sticker that’s as geek as it is chic. History buff? We have the sticker for you! And no matter what you study, show off your smart girl pride with a sticker that’s as cute as it is sensible.

 

5) Make time for more “me time”

 

IceCreamConeSticker

In 2018, we’re treating ourselves! Whether it’s an extra cupcake, a unicorn frappucino, or a Netflix binge-watching marathon, we’re letting ourselves indulge in our favorite things, no matter how #extra some people say we are. (They just don’t understand – it takes work to be this fabulous!)

We’re Dreaming of a White (Sand) Christmas | Beachy Ornaments You Need RN

beachy.christmas.ornaments

One of my favorite things about going home for the holidays is decorating our Christmas tree. Like most parents, mine saved all of our handmade creations from when we were kids, my favorite being a cutout gingerbread man made purely of brown construction paper, crayons, and a green pipe cleaner.

 

Our tree may not be “beautiful” in a photographed for Town & Country way, but it reminds us of the simplicity and excitement of our youth as well as our different (and very short) musical instrument and sport phases.

 

While my ornaments are mostly old arts & craft projects and Madeline-themed, I’ve recently started collecting more summer inspired knick-knacks to embrace my number #1 wish on every Christmas list—my own beach obsessed brand. Below are some I’m currently eyeing that I know you will love too!

 

Pink Seashell JOY

$40 from The Mermaids Box on Etsy

 This beautiful ornament from Etsy combines a quintessential Christmas sentiment with vintage and found seashells in our favorite shades of pink. We love it for our tree this year or just to hang in our office for a pink pick-me-up this holiday season!

 

Feathered Flamingo Ornament

$20 at Anthropologie

 For us to truly be a flamingo in a flock of pigeons this Christmas season, we’re loving the idea of trading in our reindeer and snowmen for a sparkly and feathered pink flamingo ornament. This one from Anthropologie will surely stand out from the crowd.

 

Sunny Life Pineapple Ornament

$7 at Shopbop

 A pineapple a day keeps the scrooge away! That’s the saying, right? The pineapple is largely used in the South to convey hospitality, warmth, and friendship, which is why we think a pineapple ornament is perfect for welcoming family and friends in for some hot chocolate and holiday cheer this winter. At only $7, we especially love this Sunny Life one.

 

Blowfish Ornament

$7.50 at Pottery Barn

 If the puffer fish in Finding Nemo was your favorite character, you’ll love this beautiful pink glass blowfish ornament from Pottery Barn. While you’re online shopping, check out their other sea-inspired decorations, including angel fish, seashells, and lifesavers.

Giving Back Has Never Looked This Cute

breast.cancer.bracelets

Instead of simply looking forward to cozying up with hot chocolate and Love Actually while surrounded by the smell of pine and freshly baked gingerbread men this holiday season, focus on helping those people who need more than just gifts and cheer this year. One (easy) way to incorporate more philanthropy into your Christmas routine is by shopping for presents that also give back.

 

We recently partnered with Gingy’s Boutique in Malvern, PA to create a line of inspirational bracelets featuring words such as XOXO, LOVE, STRENGTH, and HOPE. Not only are these bracelets adorable, but they also give back. For every sale, we are donating 20% to breastcancer.org.

 

These one size fits most bracelets come in a variety of vibrant colors and are perfect to stash in a stocking this Christmas Eve for someone you love. Shop them all at Gingy’s or at pinklyperfect.com.

Easy Pink Desserts for Halloween

easy.pink.halloween.treats

Halloween’s not just about dressing in costume and trading fun-sized Milky Ways with your besties. If you’re wiped from going out over Halloweekend and are aiming for a spooky night in instead of trick-or-treating, check out these easy, pink recipes you can make at home to both delight and fright your guests of “horror.” 😉

 

Zombie Brain Cupcakes:

Brain cupcakes are SO easy! Simply make your favorite cupcake (any flavor will work perfectly), whip up a pink frosting and apply in a “brain” pattern on top. You’ll need an icing set like this one from Bed Bath & Beyond. Use the picture above from Shutterstock for inspiration.

 

“Pink Eye” Martinis:

Got an over-21 crowd coming over for a scary movie marathon? If so, pour some “pink eye” martinis. They’re your standard martini recipe (vodka and dry vermouth) but the glass is rimmed in pink sugar. Use a melon baller to scoop out watermelon balls and toss in glass. If you really want to scare your friends, add a fake spider hanging from the rim as well!

 

Day of the Dead Skull Sugar Cookies:

day.of.the.dead.cookies
Skull cookie photo from Pinterest.

If Day of the Dead is more your speed, make some pink skull cookies to munch on in between answering the doorbell to trick-or-treaters. Use any sugar cookie recipe you love, a skull cookie cutter, and different color icings or edible markers to pink-ify a perfect skull. If you’re having friends over for a more interactive occasion, have them each decorate their own and add in various sprinkles, edible glitter, and candy corn.

 

Monster Rice Krispie Treats:

Follow this recipe from One Little Project for the cutest (and most delicious) monster inspired rice krispie treats! Don’t forget the pink candy melts and edible eyes to make these pinkly perfect. 🙂

Pumpkin Ice Cream at the Jersey Shore

all.the.places.you.can.get.pumpkin.ice.cream.at.the.shore

Written by: Meghan Reggi

It’s no secret that pumpkin-flavored treats are highly coveted this time of year, and their annual emergence is something we unabashedly look forward to.  The anticipation that builds all year for a flavor of beverages, snacks, and desserts that is only available for a small window of time is exciting!

While Starbucks advertises their beloved PSL with lots of flair and Trader Joe’s has an entire section of their store dedicated to pumpkin-flavored goodies (which are quite delicious!), you may not realize that some of your favorite Jersey Shore ice cream parlors bring this flavor to their menus once the summer has ended!  We’ve rounded up all the best spots to score pumpkin ice cream the next time you’ll be spending a fall day enjoying the shore this month.  Cozying up in your favorite Pinkly Perfect sweatshirt and enjoying this seasonal treat with a great book on the beach sounds like an ideal way to spend a Saturday afternoon to us.
